Driving a 4WD vehicle makes it possible for people of all ages and levels of ability to experience the magic of New Zealand's back country. But it is not always easy to know just where you can go in your 4WD: as well as questions of safety and right of access about particular routes, it could be that you are simply not aware of their existence! 4WD North Island gives detailed descriptions of 95 North Island roads and tracks, all of them open to the public but inaccessible to two-wheel drive vehicles. Each is presented with its own map (and grid references to topographical maps) and an accompanying text describing the degree of difficulty, likely hazards and the sights to be seen along the way. The routes range in difficulty from those easy enough to be tackled by a 4WD car to real 'hard yakka' - tracks that are challenging enough for the most ardent enthusiast. But before you head for the hills you need some basic knowledge about your vehicle to help you make the most of its capabilities and stay (or get) out of trouble. The first part of the book provides a useful guide to competent off-road driving, with information about getting to know your vehicle, essential and optional extras, driving techniques for difficult terrain, recovering a vehicle in trouble, preparing for a trip and much, much more!
